This young man (above), Jude Medcalf, 25, spent 75 days on remand at the beginning of last year for stealing food and Christmas presents from an NHS office and firing a BB gun at a woman.

But a judge ordered his release in March 2014 because he suffers from Klinefelter Syndrome, a growth disorder which means he’s too big for standard prison beds and uniforms.

His release which later caused outrage was short-lived as the the courts finally lost patience with him when he continued committing crimes.

In November last year he was sentenced to 20 months in prison for a series of bizarre offences.

And just days after being released he has now been hauled back to jail for a further eight months of misery for breaching the terms of his licence.

The giant crook from Newton Abbot, Devon, was arrested after police found he was persistently making hoax calls.

When Medcalf was jailed a year ago he admitted three counts of impersonating a police officer, three counts of sending malicious communications and three counts of theft at Exeter Crown Court.

He also admitted stealing a blue light from an emergency vehicle and an amber one from a recovery vehicle.

The court also heard that Medcalf had previous convictions for 24 similar offences of false alarms and dishonesty.
